  1. This was definitely NOT my Mother's potato soup! But it was really, really good! I did add an additional can of broth, because I thought there was not enough liquid after adding the potatoes, onions and leeks. The leeks imparted a sweetness to the soup, which I liked. Will have this again, especially when it gets cold outside! Thnx for sharing your recipe, janice. Made for PAC Fall 2009.


My updated has been almost five years since I did my last profile so I thought it was high time for me to update it. I have been living in Florida since I was two years and am almost 53 now so you can do the math. I have been happily married to my sweetie Petey for almost 23 years. We have two kids, son P.Samuel, age 17 and daughter Leah, age 6 as of Sept. 1, 2010. I had some health issues over the last few years that I won't bore anyone with. I had to have three VERY unpleasant surgeries. During that Time I taught my son Sam how to cook whilst I was in and out of hospitals. If I must say, he is very good, I told him whenever he has a serious girlfriend, she will love his culinary skills. Daughter Leah is a great help also. I am very lucky to have two wonderful kids. Sam is a senior in H.S. and Leah just started first grade. Yep, she is my menopausal surprise, but the best surprise ever. Oh, and Leah, who is standing right here did not want me to forget to mention our ten year old calico cat named Callie. She is sweet but cranky. I love to cook all kinds of main dishes, love finding new recipes from recipezaar/ all the time. We recently got something called a nuwave oven, it is the greatest invention since sliced bread. I have been a member of recipezaar since my son was small and I love it. That's it for now. Peace and Love,� J.B.
